What is your top 5 or 10 shows from 1985?

For me, its

3-28-85 Nassau
4-7-85 Philly
6-14-85 Greek
6-24-85 Cincinnati
6-27-85 Saratoga
6-28-85 Hershey Park
6-30-85 Merriweather
11-1-85 Richmond

I do like some of these first sets better than the second sets, like c-freedom. 4-7-85 is short but so sweet. Saratoga is a great first set, too. 3-28-85 is top notch all the way through the first set and into the second set as well.

I think 6-24 (an auspicious day in GD history) may be my fav. whole show of the year.

Also sweet on >

6-14 from KoG on
7-1 2nd
11-21 2nd

Saratoga 1st set is great, but the 2nd set just dies after GDTRFB.

Yeah, I skip the back half of set II in Saratoga, but my oh my that first set is glorious! A lot of times I listen to the set I of Saratoga and then go to set II of Hershey Park. That REALLY works for me. My fave Drums/Space.

I forgot about 11-21-85, that's another really good one.
